The Best Place in Helen to Tube!
The prices are more than reasonable and the experience was great. My family and I went this past weekend and we all had a blast. My daughter is 3 years old and was able to sit for the 2 hour stretch and have a good time, although I would recommend bringing some sunglasses for the parts of the river that are in the sun, especially if you have little ones. Like every once else is saying, you should opt for the stick, it helps a lot!
What a great little adventure.
This was my first time tubing. Honestly it was so fun. One little bit of advice... get the stick! My husband and I sprung for the $5 and it was worth it! So many others were frustrating because they didn't have the stick. It really makes it so much better and easier.
Best Experience I Ever Had
I have been tubing all over TN and NC and must say this was the best experience I have ever had. 100% going to bring my kids back here so they can enjoy this as well.
1 or 2 hrs tubing down long riverstream... It's best if you purchase a long stick and water shoes from them or bring your own because you will get caught on big rocks and will need the stick to push yourself away from them or you'll have to step into the cold water and free yourself.. There's also zip-lining and half dozen other things to do.
